Research Interest
.My research interests are population genetics, conservation and evolutionary biology. I have been involved in multiple conservation-related projects on different species. For my PhD, I am looking at effects of habitat fragmentation on genetics and population dynamics of multiple species of mammals particularly ungulates and meso-carnivores in the central Indian landscape. This landscape is a mosaic of fragmented but pristine wildlife habitat. I intend to study the effect of changing land-use patterns and major highways bisecting the landscape on genetic connectivity and population dynamics of focal species using genomic tools. Simultaneously, I am also trying to develop new methods which would enable us to use the poor-quality, non-invasive faecal sample for the generation of genomic data.
